“They’re baaaaack!!!”

No, it’s not yet another re-run of Poltergeist … but the return of the Dratteds 😀 I felt absolutely miserable and sorry for myself today, so I cheered myself up with starting my rotation again – I didn’t think I’d ever say the Dratteds would bring me so much joy, but it was definitely what the doctor ordered. I sat all day with my bung knee, bunged up and intermittently dripping nose, and heavy eyes due to lack of sleep (add to that a certain monthly visitor showing its head today hmmm) and stitched my little heart out … and I enjoyed every minute of it. My eyes are now like little squints, but fingers crossed I’ll sleep better tonight.

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I worked on the Dratteds (and any of my rotation, for that matter) – it was December last year since they saw daylight … so I’ve decided to do a ‘before and after’ shot to see the progress 🙂 Basically the entire left hand side is now 100% finished yippee. I’d dearly love to see them finished before year end, even if none of my other goals are met … hopefully it will happen … As they say in Arabic, “imshallah” (God willing) 🙂
